If you are like a number of people in Garforth then you will have either one or a number of trees in your garden. Trees just like the plants in your garden need looking after or they can not only become unsightly but they can also become dangerous.
When you see professional tree surgeon performing tree pruning and trimming services they make it seem easy, but there is lot more to maintaining your tree than just cutting and trimming a few branches here and there. While you can do some tasks with your pruners and a saw, most of the jobs are best left to qualified and experienced tree surgeons.
The terms trimming and pruning are often interchangeably used to denote cutting trees, but for clarification, trimming is for grooming the tree, whereas pruning has to do with the tree’s health, as well as the safety of people and structures near the tree. Correct pruning and trimming has to do with what portions to cut, how much, and when to do it.

What Do Tree Surgeons Garforth Do?
Our tree surgery team can help you to handle all sorts of different things in your garden. They can give you advice on how to take care of your trees and the plants around them in many ways. Here are a just a few of the different things that our tree service can do for your garden.
- Planting Trees
- Mulching Services

- Tree Felling & Tree Removal
If you are thinking of planting a tree in your garden then a tree surgeon would initially give you advice on the best type of tree for you to buy and the best area of your garden to plant the tree in. We can then will work to prepare the area the tree is going to be planted in by handling such things as the types of mulch and dirt preparation areas for the tree. This is important because the first few days of when a tree has been re-planted is one of the most important times of the tree’s life.
Our tree surgery team can also advise you and help you with the correct type and amount of mulch required to keep your garden in tip top condition. We will deliver the mulch to your home and lay it for you. Mulch is ideal to be used around a tree to support its growth and stability.
Stump Grinding or Removal
If you have an old sump in your garden that has started to decay or is infested with bugs then we can remove the stump and treat the area if required. Depending on the size of the stump and the roots that are attached to it our tree surgeon will decide on whether to actually remove the stump completely or whether to grind the stump. In stump grinding your tree stump will be ground right down so that it is well below the surface of ur garden enabling you to develop any type of landscaping projects in that area.
Tree Felling And Tree Removal
Tree felling and tree removal is the main type of task that our Garforth tree surgeons are called upon to perform. If you have a dead or decaying tree or a tree that has been damaged in a storm then there is a danger that limbs may fall off or the entire tree may fall down. Limbs breaking off or the tree falling down could severely injure somebody or damage property and cars. We can safely remove the tree for you. Depending on the size of the tree and the area it is in we might be able to fell the tree in one piece or we might have to dismantle the tree and remove it in pieces. We will also remove the stump.

Tree Trimming - Cherry Trees
Trees then and now
When I was a boy I was surrounded by trees. One step out my back door and there they were, trees of all sizes and shapes.. But where are those trees now? New homes have so much stone, so much grey, and so little green, they are surrounded by walls, brick fortresses, built to keep us safe. Trees aren't safe, there fun, they're beautiful, they don't tell others to keep out, not like a brick wall does. A tree is welcoming, and that does not seem to be popular these days. They take time to care for, time to water, time to prune. Stone
doesn't need us to care for it, stone is happy alone.
My father and trees
My father was always so enthusiastic about the trees in our yard, he took special care to explain the different varieties to anyone who would listen. He would tell them about a certain tree and where it came from, when he planted it, and how much fruit it had given to him. I dare say he spoke more about the trees than he did me. Of course I didn't give him buckets of fresh fruit, and I cost a lot more to raise than the few dollars it took to fertilize a tree. Dad would often arrive home from the office, change out of his stuffy suit, grab his pruning shears, and head outside to give his trees a little trim. He was at his happiest then.
Why plant more trees?
We all know how trees benefit the environment and how they give us clean air to breathe. Did you know that one tree releases enough oxygen into the atmosphere to support two people? Other than clean air, trees supply us with food in the form of fruit. One apple tree in your back yard can supply an apple a day to a family of five. Apples are just the beginning though, depending on your local climate, you can plant plum trees, apricot trees, citrus or pear trees, and a host of others. As well, a fruit tree will feed the local bird population and keep small animals fed and happy. Besides providing fruit, trees give us shade, privacy, and nesting areas for the local bird population. There is so much a tree can offer to you and your family. We need trees to feel something softer than stone, something only a tree can give, a connection to something outside of ourselves. So today I am going to plant a tree, and I hope you'll do the same.

Tree Trimming And Pruning Myths
When a tree specialist is hired to analyze a tree's condition and determine whether or not it should be removed, there are several risk factors that are taken into consideration. For example, the position of the tree, the condition of major limbs, and the ground conditions in which it is growing upon. A tree should be looked over with a critical eye and by someone who knows what to look for because if something is missed the tree can collapse and cause damage to the surrounding area.
To determine whether a tree should be removed or not several risk factors are looked at. For one, the weight distribution of a tree is critical. If it is growing in one direction more than another large amounts of stress can be placed upon the root system. This stress can result in the uprooting of the tree and destroy surrounding structures such as houses, cars, or major streets. Another risk factor that can cause the uprooting of a tree are the ground conditions. If the soil lacks oxygen the roots may not grow properly. Also, if the tree is located in an area where the ground is constantly wet, the roots will have nothing to grab on to, therefore if strong winds were to pass by the tree could easily be uprooted.
Having a tree collapse or several limbs breaking off is something that should be avoided, therefore when one notices a tree's health in decline it should be tended to immediately. If there are dead limbs towards the canopy, weak ground conditions, infestations of bugs, or a large, uneven weight distribution, one should consider tree removal.
